Manchester United target Victor Osimhen says he “doesn’t mind” whether or not he stays at Napoli this summer, while the Nigeria striker adds: “The president decides and I’ll just go with the flow.”
- Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has been a key player for Napoli this season
- He has scored 26 goals this season, securing his first Scudetto in 33 years
- The 24-year-old has now explained that he “doesn’t mind” whether he stays or not
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has claimed he “doesn’t mind” whether or not he stays at the club this summer.
The Nigerian striker, who has scored 31 goals this season and helped Luciano Spalletti’s side to the Serie A title, said the decision would be made by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis while he was “just going with the flow”.
Manchester United are closely linked with Osimhen, valued at around £130million, and Real Madrid are also likely to be interested in the striker following the loss of Karim Benzema.
He ended his Napoli season with a goal in the final game against Sampdoria on Sunday, with many speculating it could be his last appearance for the club.
However, the 24-year-old remained open about his future.

After being awarded the Capocannoniere for most goals in Serie A this season, he told DAZN: “I don’t know, the president has to decide.”
“I love the people of Naples, they showed me so much love.” For me, I don’t mind, the president decides and I’ll just go with the flow.”
“I appreciate the Neapolitans very much, they deserve it and hopefully we will win many more trophies.”
Commenting on his award for top scorer, Osimhen added: “It’s an incredible feeling for me, I’ve won the Scudetto, which is the most important thing in my career so far.
“I thank God for this season, for my teammates, my family, for the Neapolitans and they deserve it all.”
“This season has been great for me, my teammates and the Neapolitans. I think I’ve done so well this season and deserve all the best I have, but I feel motivated to do even better next season.”

Spalletti is set to leave Napoli after leading them to their first Scudetto in over three decades, and the striker paid tribute to the coach before giving a glimpse of what the club could achieve next season.
He continued: “A great coach, a great man, he deserves this.” He was a phenomenon, he’s the architect of a great season, his staff did a great job too.
“I wish him all the best in life and I hope he enjoys the time with his family.” He deserves it all, Coach of the Year.
